21 Horrible Bootleg Movie Posters That Are Actually Fantastic
These movie posters were all created by artists in Ghana to promote traveling movie shows and sell tickets to bootleg screenings of various western and local movies. They range from quirky recreations of the original movies to WTF-inducing completely unrelated to the original content. (Via AwesomeRobo!)
What you might not know about bootlegged movies, is that
In Ghana, bootlegged movies is certainly a big trade, there's a huge demand for western and local movies and so it's not surprising that a few mischievious types have opted to cash in. Bootleg screenings are regularly shown at various local villages and towns, but because the entire event is more than a little shifty, there's no support or involvement from the big film companies. No red carpets and certainly no posters or promotion.
Which means local Ghanaian illustrators are tasked with creating the artwork for each pirated movie, shocking enough to get your attention and compelling enough to want you to come and see it. Over the years they've produced some unintentionally hilarious artworks that are so god-damn awful they often defy belief.
We hope you love them as much as we do!
